Broomsticks Magical Devices and Items Quidditch Transportation


A model of broom created in 1901 by Gladys Boothby (QA9).

  • It was a slender, ash-handled broom (QA9).
  • For its time it was the first to achieve record-breaking heights (at least, record-breaking while the flyer maintained control at such an altitude) (QA9).
  • Its maximum speed was less than seventy miles per hour (QA9).
  • Part of its popularity was due to the broom's rarity, as Ms Boothby was unable to manufacture enough to meet the demand from Quidditch players (QA9).



"moon-trimmer" is a reference to the broom's ability to achieve high flying.
